Healthy Choice

The Healthy Choice Program is a voluntary discount program from the Employee Health Plan (EHP) that rewards you for taking action to manage your health. The program also provides resources to help you save on health care costs and support your overall wellbeing. When you participate and meet your goals, you’ll become eligible to save up to 30% on your health plan premiums. Have a spouse on your health plan? They can participate too, and together you could achieve your best discount.

Program Overview

The Healthy Choice program begins each year in January. To get started, you'll need to create a Healthy Choice portal account. Once you've created an account, you can view your health status and personal program requirements, which explain exactly what you need to do to earn the best discount. If you join and participate for at least six months and achieve all of your goals by the final deadline of Sept. 30, you'll be eligible for a discount the following plan year.

View the Program Overview and Getting Started Guide for more details about the program.

Guidelines and Participation

To be eligible for full credit, and the best discount in the program, you must start participating each year by Mar. 31 and meet all the goals set for you by the final deadline of Sept. 30. 

If you miss the first deadline, you may be eligible for partial credit if you start participating by June 30 and meet all the goals that are set for you by the final deadline of Sept. 30. 

Login to your Healthy Choice portal account to view your health status, along with your Personal Program Requirements - which explain how you need to participate to earn the best discount. The Personal Program Requirements for each health status are listed below as a reference. 

If you do not agree with your health status or condition diagnosis, you must contact the health plan to request an appeal before you can start participating. We recommend doing this prior to the Mar. 31 deadline. If you’re enrolled in Coordinated Care, contact your Care Coordinator to make this request.

Have a spouse on your health plan? To comply with HIPAA, he or she will need to participate and meet their own Healthy Choice requirements. At the end of the program year, their participation will be combined with yours to determine your premium discount for the following year. Together, you can earn up to a maximum discount of 30%. If you participate and they choose not to, you are still eligible for a lesser discount.

Some exclusions apply. If you have questions about your eligibility to participate in Healthy Choice, contact us
